Welcome to Getting I.T. Right @ Canyon Creek!

Welcome to Canyon Creek Elementary’s showcase of instructional technology. This fall all the classrooms in the building were equipped with ceiling mounted projectors and document cameras. Both students and teachers love these new additions to the classroom! In kindergarten, Mrs. Benoit has been thrilled to have the ability to use manipulatives and have all students able to view them. Most recently she used the document camera to count teddy bears with the class. In second grade, Mrs Palmer used her document camera as they learned about coins. The document camera used with the projector enabled all the students to examine the small details on actual coins as a class. Other teachers have used this equipment to view student work examples, to show students how to edit their writing, view science experiments up close and much more. This classroom equipment was purchased with funds passed in a previous bond election.
